A daughter is the most wonderful gift a girl can receive. If she’s anything like me, she’ll be a stubborn, hot mess, and as smart as a whip.
She, just like every other girl, will be faced with struggles that I hope I can prepare her for.
Here are 6 things I hope I can teach her before they happen:
1. Women can do anything men can do. Women are just as strong, if not stronger than men in every way possible. Please don’t let anyone tell you any different.
If you think for a second that you can’t climb that tree or do some job, because it’s “unlady like,” think again. I don’t care what you do in life, as long as your happy.
2. Sometimes the girls who you thought would always be there won’t be, and that’s okay. This lesson took years for me to learn.
Not everyone who said they’d have my back actually had my back when push came to shove. And I hope that it never happens to my daughter.
I hope she never has to cry because the girl she thought was her best friend stabbed her in the back.
3. A boy may break your heart, but he’s not worth your life. No boy deserves that much power over you.
I don’t just mean suicide attempts, I mean he’s not worth you uprooting everything you believe in, everything you are just because you think you love him.
